Better late than never...

Still underwater with work so keeping my goals to a bare minimum this week:

1. 1300 or fewer calories daily.
2. Log everything and post goals daily.
3. Exercise 6 hours (four half-hour runs, at least, included).

I think that's about all I can handle .

And topping it all off, my in-laws are coming Friday for my son's tourney this weekend. Not that I don't want them, but there's a lot to do and plan.

Welcome to our newcomers, our returners, and our regulars. I hope you all have a good week!

Healthiest day that I've had, food-wise, since Christmas. Hope I can hold it together later in the week when husband will be taking a couple of vacation days to set up tents, etc. So far, the forecast for Saturday is partly cloudy and 85. Keep your fingers crossed!

Trying to motivate myself to get my walk in but I'm losing steam... worked outside all weekend, which means that the inside of the house and the laundry was neglected. So, I worked on that all day today and it's been soooo muggy!! We're not used to that here, being land-locked and all. It just kind of saps your energy. I think I may run into town and do a little shopping, then walk around dusk when it cools off.

Today's results, so far...


1. Walk daily, weather permitting. Yes.
2. Calories between 1000-1100. Way under.
3. 3-4 fruits and veggies daily. Way over.
4. NO bread, cheese, frozen yogurt, etc. None.
5. Loose 2-3 lbs. this week... Will weigh in on Saturday.
6. 80-100 oz. of liquids a day. Yes.

I still have to make one of those! With my weakness with ANY kind of cake, it kind of spells disaster, but it sounds SOOOO good!

By the way, that's how she's going to win... Talk you into Blasts and cakes and then cross the finish line first... quite brilliant, actually! I've used that against my husband quite a few times to win a bet! lol

I'm so NOT the evil master mind you give me credit to be. Actually the rum cake sounded good and I kinda wanted to live vicariously through his belly That and I understand cravings, we all get them and I don't have the heart to say no when someone is being all pitiful. It's my womanly sympathy

Joanne, I'm so sorry I missed your initial post on our thread. Welcome! I walk for exercise, too, but only two miles per day five days per week on a treadmill or in my living room to an aerobic walking DVD. Best wishes on your return to walking.

LOL... I kind of do that with my husband, too! If I'm hungry for something, but don't want to eat it, I make HIM eat it. Does that make sense??

Mike gave me the recipe for that awhile ago... I've fought off temptation until now. But, it's sounding pretty tasty right about now! lol

Hope thanks for getting us going again this week!
Quinn Great job on the weight loss!
Nobe so glad to see you’re feeling better and back at it.

Welcome Joanne and Saskiasrhythmbeads!

Mern, how do you get such low fat and high fibre on only 16 net carbs? I have been trying to achieve the same i.e. lower fat intake and up fibre and am not having much success what’s your secret?

My goals for this week:
<1400 calories
Net Carbs: < 20
double my water intake from last week
maintain Atkins induction phase one more week
exercise as much as possible (not today - hurting too much from massive gardening push yesterday)

1400 calories: 1188
Net Carbs: 18.1
Exercise: no
Water 64 oz: 48
